Mr D invades Tenerife

If you like sun, heat and sandy beaches Tenerife is certainly the place to be..

All you gotta do is put up with about a million old people...

No offense, but why would I travel 4000km to a remote spot off the coast of Africa to see something typical Spanish?

Greenland doesn't look especially Danish either, nor would I want it to...

I think what he's trying to say is that your pictures show tourist resorts, and tourist resorts tend to look alike all around the world. Next time you go to Tenerife check out the cities of Santa Cruz and La Laguna for a real taste of Tenerife city living.

I did go to Santa Cruz and while I did find it nice and all it just didn't have anything specific that made the cut when I chose what pictures to show...

Tenerife is a vacation island with almost as many tourists as residents - sunny weather, sandy beaches and resorts are what people come there for, not the typical Spanish 60's and 70's blocks - there's plenty of that back on the mainland...

Also my picture threads are not photo documents - they are pics of what I liked and think people might like too..

Some Santa Cruz pics, the capital city. Pop: 224.000.
Really we don't like the touristic part of the island very much. Santa Cruz and La Laguna are very interesting cities, for living and for visiting.

SANTA CRUZ:




Santiago Calatrava's Tenerife Opera House (2003, 60 m):










The tallest building of the city (las torres de Santa Cruz, 120 m), now it has a twin nearly completed:










A render with the new projects. The brown and white towers are not definitive.


Other places of the city:

I find Tenerife very interesting, I've been a couple of times. The weather is always very pleasant (all year round) and the scenery is spectacular. I think to fully appreciate Tenerife you need to either rent a car and drive around the island or take bus trips to Mount Teide, Santa Cruz etc.

I love this picture. Clean, sleek road, nice looking European cars and apartments, and a gorgeous Volcano [?] looming in the background. Thank you for sharing!
